A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with some notes of dark brown and amber when held up to the light and some moderate amounts of visible carbonation near the surface. The beer has a quarter finger tall dark mocha head that quickly reduces to a thin film covering about 50% of the surface of the beer with a small patch of larger bubbles and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, and cocoa powder. There are some subtler hints of dark roasted malts as well.

T: Very similar to the smell, the taste of this beer is dominated by the flavors of chocolate - both milk chocolate and cocoa powder. There is an underlying flavor of dark roasted malt which imparts a light amount of bitterness, which lingers slightly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and creamy.

O: Easy to drink and very enjoyable, one of the more sessionable chocolate stouts I have tried. There is a very pleasant flavor with just enough complexity. A very enticing aroma to bring you in.

Tasted at the Tempe Great Arizona Beer Festival

I had previously stayed away from chocolate stouts. Not sure why. The color was very dark black with a nice thick head. Smell is chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. Taste is creamy chocolate with just a hint of bitterness and alcohol. Mouthfeeel was almost slightly grainy. This might have been a function of the tasting environment. I can't wait to try this with a nice slice of plain cheesecake. Will pick up a bottle to have the next time cheesecake is on the menu.

Serving type: on-tap
